My wife and I spent five idyllic nights here at the end of our holiday in South Africa. It was our second visit to Franschhoek and our stay at the excellent Avondrood Guest House made it even more enjoyable than the first. As described in previous reviews, the Avondrood comes close to perfection. The house is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the garden is tirelessly manicured. Justin runs the place with total professionalism and dedication, ably assisted by Lesley and the rest of the team. He was always available to help with planning the day or make suggestions, if required. Delicious breakfasts on the garden terrace were a delight. The Guest House is handily placed just off the main street and within a few minutes walk from many of Franschhoek's top restaurants. A drink at the bar before heading out in the evening is a 'must'. For beer drinkers, I can thoroughly recommend the locally produced 'Amber Weiss'. Looking forward to returning before too long!
